Description

Located in Riverside, SafeHouse is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to the safety and well-being of children in crisis. Every year, more than 600 youth between the ages of 12 to 17 turn to SafeHouse for guidance and support.

Project Safe Place- A collaborative outreach effort with community businesses to assist youth in crisis.
